Ryan Seacrest

Ryan John Seacrest was born on December 24, 1974 in Dunwoody, Georgia to parents Gary and Constance Seacrest. When he was young, he dreamed to become a DJ. He got his first DJ job at age 15 for a radio show, and graduated from Dunwoody High School in 1993. After high school, Ryan attended the University of Georgia, but dropped out when he was offered a job for ESPN. Throughout the '90s, he hosted several short-lived games shows, and landed a gig as a DJ for Star 98.7, which we worked for until 2003. In 2002, he gained fame after he took the job as a co-host for FOX's American Idol. During the second season, Ryan was promoted to host, after his fellow co-host, Brian Dunkleman did not return. He has since been host of the show, and has also earned a hosting job for E!, a co-host for Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve (and to become Dick's successor), among other jobs. In 2005, he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and in 2006, he earned an Emmy.

Ryan Seacrest Quotes
Ryan Seacrest: Everyone in showbiz is driven by ego, so how do you go from having loads of fame to working at 7-11? You can't do it!

Ryan Seacrest: I've dated some women who have turned me on to some funny things that are strange for men to actually do. But these things have become part of my process. I think the things I do for my appearance help make me look better. I even color my hair because I like how it makes me look.

Ryan Seacrest: People bring up my hair quite a bit. It's strategically tousled. The flatiron is the key.

Ryan Seacrest: When I moved to Hollywood, one of the first people I ever wanted to meet wasn't a movie star. It was a disc jockey, it was Casey Kasem.

Ryan Seacrest: I love it. I love the immediacy of it. I love the spontaneity of it, ... I love the fact that every day you see something on TV that you have an opinion about and you want to talk about and the next day you can get on the air and do it.

Ryan Seacrest: In Hollywood it seems that you're considered gay until proven otherwise!

Ryan Seacrest: I think that's the problem with our relationship with Simon -- is that he's extremely aware of how important he is to the success of the show.

Ryan Seacrest: It's OK to cry. It's because you care.
